 1  | Human and Mouse Genetics net sources

 by Martin A. Kennedy (Cytogenetic and Molecular Oncology Unit,
 Christchurch School of Medicine, New Zealand) from
 "Internet for the Molecular Biologist"

 this useful, up to date resource contains information about
 newsgroups, mailing lists, database browsers, major sequence
 databases, genes, markers and disease databases, other useful
 databases, human and mouse genome project resources, biological
 reagent sources and general information sources.

 2  | National Ataxia Foundation now ONLINE (E-mail: naf@mr.net)

 The National Ataxia Foundation (NAF) was founded in 1957 in an
 organized effort  to combat all hereditary ataxias. Hereditary
 ataxia is not a single  disease,  but a group of disorders which
 have in common that they cause ataxia  (lack of  coordination)
 and that they run in families. Terms used to describe  the
 hereditary ataxias include but are not limited to:
 olivopontocerebellar atrophy  (OPCA), spinocerebellar degeneration
 (SCA), Marie's ataxia, "pure"  cerebellar  ataxia and more. Ataxia
 can be either dominantly inherited as those  listed  above or
 recessively inherited like Friedreich's ataxia.
 NAF has three primary objectives and areas of service: Education,
 Service and  Research. Services include patient education
 materials, Pen-Pal  program,  chapters and support groups, informational
 meetings and quarterly  newsletter,  Generations. Most single copies of
 publications are free as is a  list of  "What's Available" through NAF.
 Call or write for more information.

 3  | The ImMunoGeneTics database

 is an integrated specialised database containing nucleotide sequence
 information of genes important in the function of the immune system.
 It collects and annotates sequences belonging to the immunoglobulin
 superfamily which are involved in immune recognition, these are the
 B cell antigen receptor (Immunoglobulin or Ig), the T cell antigen
 receptor (TCR) (LIGM-database) and the class I and class II
 molecules of the Human Leucocyte Antigens (HLA) system
 (HLA-database).

 Release 2 (December 1995) contains 3149 fully annotated sequence
 entries.

 4  | Blood Cells, Molecules, & Diseases

 Blood Cells Foundation, publishes articles in the broad area of
 hematology, including areas such as genetics, pathophysiology,
 immunology, clinical medicine, and morphology. This journal is the
 successor of Blood Cells, a journal that has been in existence for
 over 20 years. It is indexed in MedLine, Reference Update, Current
 Contents and most of the other current awareness services. Articles
 that are accepted for publication are distributed in final form over
 the internet, and are available free of charge from our web site.

 Kendrick & Associates, Inc. has begun offering a new technical
 writing  service for the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and chemical
 industries.  This service is being marketed under the service mark
 BioWrite.
 The president has a master of science degree in microbiology and
 years  of experience both at the bench and at the word processor.
 We now  have  several consultants devoted only to this task.

 7  | Platform opportunities at Nature Genetics conference
      (E-mail: k.davies@NATUREDC.COM)

 NATURE GENETICS is hosting its next conference in Vancouver, Canada,
 on April 17-19, entitled: "Genetic Susceptibility & Complex Traits".
 We have room for one or two late additions to the program to present
 "Late-breaking research". We therefore invite anyone who thinks they
 will have work of outstanding general interest and significance to
 contact the Editor of Nature Genetics in the next 6-8 weeks. One or
 two speakers for the conference will be selected on or about March
 15.

 Kevin Davies
 Editor, Nature Genetics
 545 Natl Press Bldg
 Washington DC 20045, USA

 Tel: (202) 626-2513 Fax: (202) 626-0970
 Email: natgen@naturedc.com

 Well over 200 people have already registered for the meeting, and we
 hope to attract many more in the next couple of months. Full details
 are available from Diana Berger, Nature Publishing, 345 Park Avenue
 South, New York. Tel: 212 726-9280; Fax: 212 696-9006; Email:
